There were many ideas and techniques used in the Romanesque architecture style. The greatest achievement on architecture was that the Romanesque period architecture was the creation of stone vaults. The reason that the stone vaults came along because the stone vaulting was needed to replace the previous vaulting which were
This time period became known as the Enlightenment. This movement was a breeding station; ideas about art was exchanged, and Rococo ideals of love and eroticism became less pertinent. Although some Rococo artists continued to paint in their own style, others developed a new kind of art, Neoclassicism. Neoclassicism marked a return to rational principles which protested against the superficial elegance of the Rococo and sponsored a return to classical ideals based on the Greek and Roman models. Marie Denise Villers painted the Marie Josephine Charlotte du val d’Ognes.
The concept of interior design was greatly explored during the Rococo period, and it is the combination of different features that determines the success of an interior. To achieve a desired goal one has to consider every part of a design. The type of paint and its colour, the type of wall finish, furniture, and flow of a room has to all work together to be successful. The Rococo style is well known for its elegance and beforehand planning that went into every design that was executed by the best designers and craftsmen of the era. The Rococo period is known for its elaborate interiors, decorated with ceiling detail and motifs inspired by nature.
Which of these two styles do you think is better at getting a message across? It is a fact beyond reasonable doubt that both Neoclassical and Romantic art were used as tools for governments, institutions, and individuals to convey their messages; however, the Romantic art accelerates the intense emotion and create a lasting impact on those that gaze at the work centuries after the production. One element worth remembering about the Neoclassical is that it brings to mind the stark difference between the Rococo era reminiscent of romance and leisure and the strong principles of the Greek democracy and Roman idea of freedom and liberty of the individual. The Neoclassical arts scene is one that indicates or portrays the highest point in the individual’s life and its message was often meant to indoctrinate
The work which distinguishes the baroque era is based on stylistically complex and variation arts. Baroque art evokes emotional states by giving appeal to the senses, creating dramatic expressions movement, vitality, grandeur, tension, blur distinctions, and sensuous richness in various arts. According to Patrick (2007), Catholic counter-reformation efforts against Protestantism influenced the development of the baroque art. Catholic Church used baroque art to react to mannerism and social turmoil of the period. Catholic Church and the council of Trent emphasized on artworks that clearly interpret realistic subjects.
For his writings, Adrian Kempton said that Milton was in one hand attacked by extremists critics as “a bigoted puritan, who wrote an excessively long-winded, irrelevant, contorted, and obscure religious poem”, Paradise Lost, and on the other praised as a “the great champion of Christian Humanism and author of an inimitable epic masterpiece”. He added that it is in his first poem written in English where he served as a poet I the service of
When we think of the most famous artists of our time, artists such as Van Gogh, Claude Monet, and Pablo Picasso come to mind. Something that often doesn’t occur to many people is, where exactly did these artists develop their signature style of art, and what influenced them to create it? Claude Monet created the impressionistic style when quickly trying to catch the beauty of a sunset before it disappeared, spurring a new style of art that eventually influenced Van Gogh. But what exactly influenced Pablo Picasso’s seemingly bizarre style of cubism? In my paper I’ll be exploring how Pablo Picasso and other artists were influenced to create the cubism style, and how these influences were the cause of an entire art movement.
Milton use this D-word during the time where the word death was considered as taboo. Thus Paradise Lost by Milton, is an epic poetry, which portray the grand style of Milton. Raleigh in his essay, The style of Milton says, “since Milton died, his name is become the mark, not of a biography nor of a theme, but of a style – the most distinguished in our poetry”
Artistic contribution during this period was looked upon with high regard, because of this ancient art, “classic”, especially that of Greek (e.g., a classical example of a villa). In addition, “classic” could also be referring to at times improvement to a modern style with antique aesthetic appearance, also being identified as a regular feature. This feature gave modern objects of the neo- classical period a fuller more harmonious appearance which was done deliberately by the artist of this age. Specific qualities: like line over colour, straight lines over curves, closed compositions over diagonal compositions, favoring a more linear approach to style. Nonetheless, when artists referred to antiquity, they had their own artistic opinion and ideals, and antique attitudes
Baroque style flourished in a time during which variations of styles were expressed (Carl & Charles, 2012) and it embraces ramifications in artistic sense and its forms varied in every country and community (Hauser, 1999). It emerged when Roman Catholic Church adopted it to be the counter of the Protestant Revolution promoted by Martin Luthur, and the style gained its popularity in France and Roman court. Eventually it prevailed in Holland. The Baroque style of art is thought to be irregular and capricious by historians, and so comes its name – it is derived from the Portuguese word ‘Barrocco’, meaning imperfect pearl (Carl & Charles, 2012). According to Hauser (1999), the term Baroque at first is used to describe the music of its style that has no coherent melody.
